Michigan Edges Ohio State in OT Thriller
What a game.
After falling to Ohio State in the first matchup in Columbus, Michigan held serve on its home floor in the rematch to the tune of 76-74 in overtime.
Aaron Craft was rejected (albeit with a little contact) by Tim Hardaway Jr. as the buzzer sounded. Hardaway led the way for the Wolverines with 23 points, and Trey Burke added 16 of his own.
This was a must win for Michigan in the Big Ten race. The only way someone is going to emerge from this loaded conference is by defending home court.
It doesn’t get any easier for either squad this week. The Wolverines travel to Madison Saturday and the Buckeyes host top-ranked Indiana Sunday.
Proud of the refs by not determining the game..... Tough one but we will be back.....— Jared Sullinger (@Jared_Sully0) February 6, 2013
Michigan 76, Ohio State 74 (FINAL)
Michigan wins. Unbelievable finish as Craft is blocked by Hardaway Jr. to end the game. Huge win for the Wolverines in the Big Ten title race. They absolutely had to have that one.
On the other side, Trey Burke with a huge play. He has been clutch on both sides.
Deshaun Thomas has not touche the ball since regulation.— Kyle Rowland (@KyleRowland) February 6, 2013
Miles from Eleven Warriors can't believe it either.
Aaron Craft seems to have forgotten Thomas is still on the team.— Miles 11W (@Miles11W) February 6, 2013
And Craft is rejected from behind. Again, Thomas does not touch the ball on the biggest possession of the game.
Big time game right now! I wish I could be there!— evan turner (@thekidet) February 6, 2013
Michigan 75, Ohio State 74 (20 seconds overtime)
And Aaron Craft with a huge steal. Buckeyes with the ball and a chance to take a lead late.
Michigan 75, Ohio State 74 (37 seconds overtime)
Craft with a big basket there. Huge possession coming up for the Wolverines.
Somehow Thomas is not touching the ball on offense.
And just like that Ross is back in the game.
Hard to argue with Beau Bishop of 10TV in Columbus.
Man I wish LaQ were on the floor right now. Be a great experience for him going forward.— BEAU BISHOP (@BeauBishop) February 6, 2013
Michigan 75, Ohio State 72 (2:20 overtime)
Perhaps some nerves right now as both teams a little flat out of the gates in overtime.
Michigan 75, Ohio State 72 (4:15 overtime)
Unbelievable three by Burke out of the gate. Crowd is on fire.
Wow. Two great teams out here.Crisler is incredible right now. This is the crowd of a national contender.— Maize Rage (@UMMaizeRage) February 6, 2013
OH THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR OVERTIME, BASKETBALL GODS— Zac Jackson (@FSOhioZJackson) February 6, 2013
Ohio State 72, Michigan 72 OVERTIME
And Burke misses the three at the buzzer. Only fitting that this game goes to overtime. This is a great example of why the Big Ten is the best conference by a long shot.
This may be the best game of the regular season in college basketball so far.
Ohio State 72, Michigan 72 (21 seconds)
Lenzelle Smith Jr. with a shot to tie it up in the corner. Michigan will probably go for the last shot here. Burke or Hardaway?
Burke with a big-time three. Loudest Crisler Arena has been all night. Remember this from last year. 68-65 Michigan.— Brandon Castel (@BCastOZone) February 6, 2013
Michigan 68, Ohio State 68 (2:20 second half)
Burke and Thomas trade threes. Oh boy.
The Buckeyes have bounced back from every punch Michigan has thrown tonight. Will be interesting to see if they can do the same one more time.
Very cool to see a football star (Denard Robinson) cheering so passionately the basketball team....Rare— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) February 6, 2013
Buckeyes doing way too much one-on-one with the ball right now, and Michigan is taking advantage. Hang on to your seats, this one could have a great finish.
